Dayton Audio PT2C-8 Planar Tweeter
Thinking of using either 4 of the dome silkies or 2 of the planars (per ch.) for a line array project. Any thoughts?
planars are typically a little better suited to line array applications as they behave like lines by nature so using multiples just extends that. Domes need to be spaced as close together as possible and still are limited by the top end by the distance you can space the drivers.

Hi Would like to use 9pcs of the Dayton PT2C in a line Array. How to hook these up to get 8ohm ? Are these exactly the same units that Bob Carver use in he,s speakers?
You will have to wire three sets of three together in parallel and then wire the three sets together in series. This will yield an 8 ohm overall load. Unfortunately I do not know if these are the same units used in the Carver speakers.

Is the power handling 80w RMS for the tweeter itself or for the full system?
That is for the tweeter alone, assuming a high pass filter is used at 3kHz LR2 or higher.

Can this be used as a pro sound line array tweeter? I intend to use some units in a 3-way pro sound line array, crossed over to 6 inch midrange elements. Can it work in this configuration?
Yes this will work well as a line array tweeter.

What bypass capacitor should be used in series to allow only 3.5k hz and up to enter this Planar? .
These tweeters are "independent", with their own full-range source from the "A" speaker" amplifier output rated at 70w per stereo channel, per side; therefore, 280 total watts. The "B" speaker amplifier output is connected to a pair of 295-605 mid-woofers in another cabinet. Both "A" and "B" carry 8-16 ohm ratings.
If you want to cross this tweeter at 3.5kHz I would recommend at least a second order filter. If you use only a cap it will have to be crossed around 7kHz in order to be properly protected. I would recommend a 4 uF cap and 0.5 mH inductor for a crossover point of 3.5kHz.

which L pad?
powering this with a 45w rms x2 stereo tube power amp, TB 5.25 woof/datyon 3000 crossover. should i go a bit over in terms of power handling?
You do not need any more than the 15 watt model for this application.
